We like it as it’s pretty! Shown here in ceramic pot (comes with saucer) or if you already have a pot, you can just buy the Aloe Vera as it comes with a plastic pot.
Latin Name: aloe barbadensis
Native to: Africa (and other areas)
Likes: Normal room temperature (indoors – it’s a house plant)
Loves: Being watered thoroughly, in the summer months, and then let it completely dry out. Hates being drowned!
Doesn’t like: Being drowned! Being cold!
Water: Better to water once a week (or once a fortnight) a lot and then let it dry out completely, before you water again. Let it completely dry out. In the winter, when it’s dormant, less watering sessions!
Got pets? Well, can’t imagine they’d want to eat your plant – aloe juice doesn’t taste very nice.
